CD Reviews

Doc and Bill pickin' a few licks!
Eric N. Hermann | Cleveland, OH | 12/11/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Great album. Traditional fiddle tunes/hoedowns and early bluegrass tunes (most of them written by Monroe) played in an intimate relaxed setting. Some of Monroe's best Mandolin picking. Doc is exceptional as always.Great album for musicians. With only two instruments playing, you can really hear what they're doing. Singing combination is very interesting as well: Bill's famous high tenor and Doc's deep, melodious voice.This is a great album by two masters of traditional music."
Truly Great
Eric N. Hermann | 10/31/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a tremendous album by two of the legends of bluegrass music. If you like bluegrass (or just great music for that matter), you'll be blown away by these live, relatively loose jam sessions where their virtuosity and vocal skill is incredibly apparent. A must..."
Truly 5 Stars

"You can find discs that are good start to finish but how many can you find that are absolutely top shelf right through? Monroe could be a difficult musician to play with but it's clear he had to respect Doc's genius and these sessions just took off. This is the real deal."
